Great job to gain experience
Accounting Clerk (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON15 November 2018
A good place to work at. I work in the finance team. You get to learn many new things that are important for your experience and career advancement. Possibility of moving up the ladder if you are a hard worker and do your job right. Management is very friendly and will help when needed.
Pros
Great place to get experience
Cons
No dental (But you do have medical)

LOVE the people...fantastic environment!!!
Technician (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON5 November 2018
Very great place to work if you have a family and need/want a Monday to Friday job with wonderful hours. Very understanding when it comes to family issues/sick kid. They also give bonus days which is fantastic if you need a day off for doctors or something important. The best part is the people...very friendly and always laughing. Never had the pleasure of working in an environment like this.
Pros
free lenses...which saves thousands of dollars
Cons
doesn't have the best pay but makes up with great hours

Not ideal work place
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON13 March 2018
Management is all related, they are nice but some don’t have the necessary skills to hold the position that they do. Environment is terrible for the workers, however employees are nice. Most of them don’t have a choice so they stay. If you need a job and want Monday to Friday then ya this job might do however it’s not a place you would stay forever.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
No advancement, low pay, management, environment

Drama. Clique atmosphere.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON6 October 2017
My experience was terrible. Having to deal with such condescending and infuriating treatment. It's a job but not really offering advancement due to the majority of the management and staff are related to each other. Benefits yes but no dental. But cheap sun glasses.
Pros
Free lunches, free sun glasses
Cons
No advancement. Staff pretty much.

Lense inspection (Current Employee) –  Lancaster Rd, Ottawa26 April 2017
Interesting work, and the training is extensive. The only good thing about this company are the low-level employees. Probably 75% of management are related to each other, so as far as advancement is concerned? Forget about it! If you don`t like chemicals or strong smells, this is also not the place for you. It can get quite noisy just like any other manufacturing environment.Depending on which dept, the hours are somewhat flexible. It`s an ok place to work just don`t place on making it a career.
Pros
Free pair of eye glasses once a year
Cons
No advancement

Productive and fun environment work place.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON14 June 2016
I'm working with great humorous and wonderful people. Management is very good and they respect the employees. Co-workers are very friendly and teamwork. The hardest part of the job is to remember little details of every different jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job is unpack and pack the jobs.
Pros
flexible lunch hours
Cons
long hours
